Mark Twain said “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life” and man was he right… and every book delivery at the shop, seems to just reiterate the fact. Enter Foraged Flavor, which will undoubtedly be more of a summer companion than simply an addition to my library. The book is a hearty and detailed field guide (with recipes) to the nearly lost art of foraging for wild edibles, including a seasonally organized how to for preparing them to highlight their unique flavors. With twenty-five botanical illustrations, fifty color photographs of the plants, and tons of field- and kitchen-tested know-how, it will be an indispensable guide for cooking enthusiasts.
